Review by Library Journal Review

In her third cookbook, popular British baking personality Kim-Joy presents 60 new recipes for fanciful, rainbow-hued sweet treats to celebrate special occasions of all kinds. Drawing inspiration from a range of global celebrations, Kim-Joy offers whimsical baked treats for Diwali, Lunar New Year, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Day of the Dead, and more. The basic cake recipes used throughout the book include vanilla, chocolate, ginger, and red velvet variations, and most recipes can be made vegan. Kim-Joy's fans will appreciate her signature creative touches on these celebratory baked goods, including animal themes (Hot Cross Bunnies), vivid color palettes (a rainbow cheesecake to celebrate Pride Month), and punny recipe titles. The Halloween chapter is a highlight, featuring Key Slime Pie, Meringue Monsters, and brownie spiders. Although many of Kim-Joy's creations feature advanced baking and decorating techniques, she keeps the focus on fun rather than perfection and encourages readers to use store-bought elements instead of homemade to make baking less stressful. VERDICT Kim-Joy's latest collection of whimsical, brightly colored treats is her most charming and accessible yet, sure to appeal to enthusiastic home bakers and devotees of her signature aesthetic.--Kelsy Peterson, Brighton Grammar Sch., Melbourne, Australia
